All 110 ministers are useful; there is no point in downsizing – Deputy Minister claims

- A government official, William Kusi Sabi, has argued that the government needs all of its 110 ministers to work

- He added that everyone of them has a role to play and it is too early to judge the government's output

The Deputy Minister of Monitoring and Evaluation, William Kusi Sabi, has argued that it is unnecessary for the government to cut down the number of ministers.

According to a report by 3news.com, Sabi added that all that matters is that the output of the ministers satisfies the government’s agenda.

Speaking on 3 FM’s Sunrise show on Thursday, September 13, 2018, Sabi noted that he has no right to determine the number of ministers to execute the government’s agenda, but is convinced everyone has a role to play.

“The President needs that number of ministers and everybody is also doing his work so I will not find any reason why anybody should not be there,” he said.

The current administration holds the record for the highest number of ministers working in government, and the number is yet to change, over 20 months after President Akufo-Addo assumed office.

YEN.com.gh understands that a cross-section of Ghanaians believe the government is lagging behind in fulfilling many of the campaign promises.

Sabi is however convinced that the government is on track, and it is too early to start judging the government on its promises.

“The four year period given to government has not ended, and the government knows that it has to start from some stages and to reach certain stages.

You cannot just say that I will establish One District One Factory, and you come first month and all factories are made”, he argued.

He added the National Identification Authority (NIA) is working around the clock to give Ghanaians a new Ghana card.
